Great Thoughts for Thinking: (Changed Mondays & Thursdays.)

Christ is so in love with holiness, that at the price of his blood he will buy it for us.  —John Flavel


The more you approach the Light, the more you reproach the dirt.  —Matt Papa


While all men seek after happiness, scarcely one in a hundred looks for it from God.  —John Calvin


It is essential to understand that battles are primarily won in the hearts of men.  –Vince Lombardi


Whatever you fear, go there.  –Billie Jean King


I’m not a big stat guy.  I definitely respect what those players did.  I’ve always admired them.  But I’m trying to focus on what I need to do.  Stats are good to hear about and stuff, but they really don’t help me put balls in the court.  I’m not motivated by stats.  –Andy Roddick


Dream as if you’ll live forever.  Live as if you’ll die tomorrow.  –James Dean


You have to be able to center yourself, to let all of your emotions go….  Don’t ever forget that you play with your soul as well as your body.  –Kareem Abdul-Jabbar


I learned that if you want to make it bad enough, no matter how bad it is, you can make it.  –Gale Sayers


Someday is not a day of the week.  --Denise Brennan-Nelson


Very often a change of self is needed more than a change of scene.  --Arthur Christopher Benson.  RG-But sometimes it takes a change of scene to help change one’s self.


Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.  --Oscar Wilde


You know, sometimes, when they say you're ahead of your time, it's just a polite way of saying you have a real bad sense of timing.  --George McGovern 


Observe due measure, for right timing is in all things the most important factor.  --Hesiod


There is no road too long to the man who advances deliberately and without undue haste; there are no honors too distant to the man who prepares himself for them with patience.  --Jean de la Bruyere


40 Days of Prayer for the Pastors, Churches, Cities, and Requests of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association.  See Prayer Resources above for full lists.

Today's SIG Alert!*

Day 5 – Matthew 7.7-8: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.  James 4.3: When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives.

  1. Pray that we will realize the certainty of answers to our prayers when we ask with the right motives—motives which glorify our heavenly Father.
  2. Pray for the Tower of Praise Christian Church, their pastor Dr. John Calvin III, his wife Fannie and their family, their church leaders, and congregation.
  3. Pray for the Second Mt. Nebo Baptist Church, their pastor Rev. W. J. Glenn, his wife Mary and their family, their church leaders, and congregation.
  4. Pray for the city of Compton, for their elected and appointed officials, for their citizens, and for God’s will to be done in that city.
  5. Pray that God will give our churches Spirit-filled, equipped, motivated, and mature workers to ‘reap the ripe fields around us for the harvest’ (John 4:35), to recruit the lost to faith in Christ Jesus.
